Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

INDIANAPOLIS - Howie Roseman's job right now is to find the kinds of players new coach Chip Kelly needs, building at least a slightly different template than the one the Eagles used for 14 years under Andy Reid. Defining that template is a huge, important undertaking in Year 1 of a regime, and it has been Roseman's focus at the NFL Scouting Combine, as the Eagles' general manager sits every day with Kelly and the rest of the scouting and coaching operation, watching more than 300 prospects work out. "It's a learning process," Roseman said Sunday.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - In a span of 21 months, since the firing of Andy Reid and the final ascension of Howie Roseman, the Eagles have constructed as complete a football team as has been seen in Philadelphia in a decade. Oh, it has its flaws. The defense surrenders yards and points like the French. Chip Kelly's Machine Gun offense continually sputters, especially in the early stages of games, even before the offensive-line collapsed. Still, overall, the team has gotten production from everywhere.

It's difficult to imagine Cody Parkey as an Eagle if it weren't for the relationship between Howie Roseman and Ryan Grigson. Former Eagles colleagues and frequent trade partners, the two general managers on Aug. 20 had just placed rookies on waivers who would have filled holes on each other's teams. The Eagles needed a kicker, and the Colts had just cut Parkey. The Colts needed a running back, and the Eagles had just released David Fluellen. Realizing the mutual interest, Roseman and Grigson worked out a straight-up deal before Parkey and Fluellen officially went on waivers.

Cody Parkey lost his job. It was Aug. 20, and the Indianapolis Colts decided to waive him. Then the kicker received a call from Colts general manager Ryan Grigson telling him that he had been traded to Philadelphia. The Eagles surrendered running back David Fluellen, whom they planned to waive. It was a swap of two unwanted players. If the Eagles hadn't traded for Parkey and tried claiming him off waivers, the kicker would have been up for grabs to the 21 teams ahead of them on the waiver wire.

LESEAN McCOY said last night on his 94WIP radio show that he "wished I'd taken that run a different way," and not been tackled onto the back of Evan Mathis' left knee, spraining Mathis' MCL. Mathis' Pro Bowl blocking skills played a role in McCoy winning the NFL rushing title last season, with a franchise-record 1,607 yards. The Eagles, you might have heard a few times by now, were blessed to be able to start the same five offensive linemen in every 2013 game. That became unlikely for 2014 when news of Lane Johnson's banned-substance suspension broke in late June.

Howie Roseman sat on his couch at an off-campus rental in Gainesville, Fla., on April 22, 1995 with stacks of handwritten notes scattered in front of him and the NFL draft on television. He was a 19-year-old at the University of Florida who dreamed of becoming an NFL general manager. Roseman assembled a draft board and identified areas of needs and potential prospects for each team. When the New York Jets selected Penn State tight end Kyle Brady with the No. 9 overall pick, Roseman threw his papers.

As fair as it is to critique the disproportionate number of former Oregon players on the Eagles roster, the greater issue isn't a question of "Why?" but "How?" How did so many ex-Ducks - five on the 53-man roster, two on the practice squad - end up in Philadelphia? The obvious answer, of course, is Chip Kelly. But the follow-up is a much trickier question to answer: How did Kelly seemingly gain so much authority over player acquisition when the division of personnel power was billed as a 50-50 split between the new coach and general manager Howie Roseman?

Travis Long's No. 57 jersey was not going to be displayed in Philadelphia sporting goods stores this season, but there was considerable optimism about the linebacker in the team's headquarters this summer. So when it was learned that Long tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the final preseason game, it left the Eagles without a player who was expected to be a valuable reserve. It also made two backup linebackers even more noteworthy: inside linebacker Casey Matthews, who continues to survive, and first-round pick Marcus Smith, whose development requires patience.

There may be a decision to quibble with here or there, but the 53-man roster the Eagles trimmed to on Saturday didn't come with many surprises. They kept only three running backs, retained four tight ends, went heavy on the lines with 16 total players, and snuck five of Chip Kelly's former Oregon Ducks onto the roster. But there weren't any shocking cuts, unless running backs Henry Josey and Matthew Tucker, receiver Damaris Johnson, or defensive lineman Damion Square catch on elsewhere and light the NFL on fire.

Cody Parkey's 54-yard field goal last Thursday was a hint that a change could come at kicker for the Eagles. When Parkey followed with a 53-yard field goal one quarter later, it seemed all but inevitable that Parkey would supplant Alex Henery. Coach Chip Kelly would not say it after the game, but the Eagles saw enough from Parkey to convince them that the rookie should open the season as the team's kicker. The Eagles cut Henery on Saturday, one of the 22 transactions the team made to trim the roster to the league-mandated 53 players.

Damaris Johnson sat in his locker stall after the Eagles' 37-7 preseason win over the New York Jets on Thursday night and faced an uncertain future. This is the third consecutive year Johnson entered Labor Day weekend unsure of whether he would be employed on Labor Day. His grasp on a roster spot has seemed to wane each season. Johnson impressed this preseason, helping at running back while also filling his receiver and return roles. He finished with nine catches for 90 yards and a touchdown; 12 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown; and averaged 11.8 yards per punt return and 22.6 yards per kick return.
